According the paragraph in the manpage that I quoted in my OP it does.

Aaaarrrgggghhhh!! I must have read the manpage a dozen times (and edited
the .fetchmailrc as many) but never spotted that. Thank you, it seems to
be working now - almost.
It still won't bounce anything and also it doesn't seem to always detect
a valid address if it's embedded in a long To/Cc/Bcc line, e.g.
To: mard at myisp.com, mare at myisp.com, marg at myisp.com, marko at myisp.com,
mars at myisp.com
and gives "No local matches. Forwarding to postmaster"
I'll tinker around a bit more....
